Ragnar Bragason Goes Metal. METALHEAD Starts Production
we deal with our griefs, about community and a sense of family, dreams and nightmares."
Ragnar is most likely drawing from his own experiences as a youth, having been brought up in a small community in rural Iceland and experiencing loss at young age, seeking solace and inspiration in heavy metal music.
The main roles are handled by veterans and fresh new faces, Þorbjörg Helga Dýrfjörð (Baltasar Kormakur's The Deep) is Hera and veterans Ingvar E. Sigurðsson (Jar City) and Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir (Polite People) round out the main cast.
Ragnars history with mixing drama with humor has been successful in the past and I have no doubt that this will be stellar stuff. As I said before production starts next month with the premiere slated for fall 2013. You can follow the progress on their Facebook page here and we will be following this project as it goes along.
